If you register for nothing else, register for a baby swing.
They are usually worth their weight in gold for a fussy baby who is tired of being held and is dissatisfied with your many attempts to rock and soothe them.

At one point or another, you’ll probably find yourself pacing the floor with your baby, rocking him/her in your arms to calm or get them to sleep.  A swing can get that job done while giving you a needed break.  Accustomed to 9 long months in the womb, your newborn or young infant may like the gentle, gliding ,rhythmic motion of a swing. The bonus for you is that it can be a safe place to put him/her down. It could also help calm a colicky newborn. Swings usually have a partially reclined setting for snoozing and another for sitting up.

Full-sized baby swings are designed for indoor use, for babies from birth to 25 or 30 pounds, although a few different models can be used for babies over 30 pounds. Most offer a variety of speeds, music, and toy bars.
